However, the Foreign Office advice now includes the following section :
There have been a number of political demonstrations in early 2006, in both Bangkok and provincial towns. Opponents of the Prime Minister held major demonstrations in Bangkok on 13 and 14 March 2006. These passed off peacefully. However, a further large demonstration by opposition supporters is planned for
Saturday 25 March 2006 at Makawan Bridge near the Ministry of Education building. You should avoid large crowds and public gatherings, as there is a risk of public disorder.
I can imagine others who might be considering a holiday in Thailand will be starting to look elsewhere. If this damaging dispute continues then I fear for the impact on the tourist industry in Thailand and the effect on those who rely on it to earn a living.
